ForeverMissed
Cynthia Jo Allinder Coe passed away at home in Helena, Alabama on
Thursday, August 8, 2019, after a long and hard fought battle with
breast cancer.  Cindy was born on 10/10/56 to Jo Ann and Noel Allinder
who predeceased her along with her big brother, Michael Allinder.  Her
survivors are her beloved husband, Dean Coe, and her son, Phillip
Thomas Coe whom she adored with her whole heart.  She is also survived
by her sister, Marsha Allinder Graham, her sister-in-law, Carol Swann
Holt, aunts, nieces, nephews and cousins.  She loved each and every
member of her family.  Cindy graduated from Midfield High School in
1975.  She worked as an Insurance Supervisor at Birmingham
Radiological Group for many years until ill health forced an early
retirement.  Cindy loved her BRG co-workers and considered them all
dear friends.  Cindy had many friends from Midfield. They kept up with
each other over the years and socialized, and had some really great
times together.  She also enjoyed eating out whenever possible with a
close group of friends, and she always looked forward to those days
with great joy.  Cindy was an amazing cook and a talented seamstress
and crafter.  She gave us all great joy for many years with food,
handmade Easter baskets and Christmas stockings.  In addition to those
talents, Cindy had a great servant's heart and loved to help people in
any way she could.  She was funny and could make you laugh about
anything.  She maintained her sense of humor and love of life despite
her illnesses, pain and suffering.  She also loved Alabama football.
RTR!!!  She loved her pets who brought her such comfort and happiness
over the years.  We will miss and love her forever, but we will
treasure the memories and we will never forget her sweet smile and
beautiful blue eyes.  Go with God, Cindy.  We will see you again some
fine day and what a great day that will be.

We were at the beach with family back in late May when I got a text saying my sweet friend, Cindy Allinder Coe, would most likely not make it through the night. Many people who loved her prayed and asked God for more time. She made it through that night to improve. Cindy was a fighter. She didn’t fight people, but she fought cancer for years with everything in her mind, body, and soul! She never wanted anyone to feel sorry for her! She fought hard and with a positive attitude! She still made people laugh and she still wore that awesome smile! God answered our prayers and gave us a little over two more months with her.

During those two months she kept fighting. She wanted out of her hospital bed so she could sit in her chair at the kitchen table. We tried to get her to accept that she couldn’t do that. Not our Cindy! On July 2, I got on FB to see a photo of her in her chair, sitting at the kitchen table eating soup by herself.

Tonight, August 8, 2019, our friend, our fighter, took her last breath. Some might say she lost the battle. I say she won. She fought with dignity and lived her life as if every day could be her last. She loved her friends and we loved her. She fought for life so hard that God took her to Heaven where she could be whole again. She got her legs back. She isn’t rolling around Heaven in a wheelchair. She is running up and down the streets of gold with her precious parents who loved all of us like we were theirs. She is racing with her brother Mike who she hadn’t seen for years! They are showing her around her new neighborhood.

Yes! She didn’t lose the battle. She won the race of life. When she arrived in Heaven, I am sure God told her, “well done, my good and faithful servant!”

We here on earth have not experienced the joy she must feel tonight! Our earthly bodies hurt and we grieve our loss. We will miss our sweet friend but will rejoice that she is healed! No more pain, no more suffering, no more struggling to breathe, and no more cancer!!

We, who know Jesus as our savior, will see you again, Cindy. What a reunion that will be! In the meantime, will love and take care of each other and make sure to keep Dean, Phillip, and Marsha in our prayers as they learn a new normal here on earth without you.

Good-bye sweet angel! You did good and we are all better people for having known you!

Cindy was such a trooper. Who could have gone through all she did without a fighting spirit. Dean, Phillip & Marsha you are in my prayers for peace & comfort. I am saddened that I cannot come to the memorial service. You will all be in my prayers as you face the days, weeks, months and years without your beloved Cindy. God Bless You All.

We had not seen Cindy other than on Facebook in years but Eddie and I both remember what a happy and wonderful person she was. Always smiling or laughing. Always kind.

Cindy was one of the sweetest people. I have been following her journey and as much as she will be missed, there is no more pain for her. She was an inspiration to all people on how to live your life with all the adversities that she endured. RIP

It is normal to say you will miss someone once they are gone. It is normal to grieve that loss of family or friend. It is normal to be sad at a time like this because you have lost that special someone.
That being said; Cindy was not normal. Cindy was a "one of a kind" person, yes she was a friend, but she was also family. She did things that normal friends usually don't do. She truly had a piece of the heart of that person who knew her.
We truly grieve because there is a huge hole in our world, those that called her friend and family, again the two intermingle.
Sadness will be here for quite a while because we will not hear or see her love, and whit on a daily basis like we have for many years. 
Her stories will live in in our memories though, always recalling the witty things she would say. Her memories will live on in the crafts that she made for many of us. Her memories will live from all the things she has done for others and the fighting spirit this woman gave so many of us.
She will continue with us through Dean, Phillip and Marsha as we rely on them to help us as we will in turn help them.
I pray and give daily thought for Dean, Phillip and Marsha and the rest of the family as they deal with their loss, they were with her through thick and thin and I say GOD the love they had for her....
Finally, we rejoice that she is now in Paradise with those she loved and have gone on before her and I am sure there is rejoice there because of her entry and pretty sure there is laughter because Cindy has gone home. We can't wait to see you again dear friend, we love you.....

Even though I didn't get to see Cindy but a time or two after high school, she was always in my prayers. She had a fight in her that inspires and makes me stop when I find myself complaining about my knees. Her smile and laugh were additive. Cindy is whole again and has no pain. Praise God. I'll see you again my sweet friend.

Cindy will be greatly missed. She was always such a sweet and encouraging person in high school. While I have not seen her in a long time, I enjoyed her posts on Facebook. She was an amazing person and her attitude throughout her journey, living with cancer and diabetes, inspired me. She was truly a kind and humble person. I know she loved her family greatly. Her family will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers!

I had not seen Cindy in years but kept up with her on Facebook and through her loving sister, Marsha, with whom I have been friends since childhood. I knew Cindy as a fun-loving child, teenager and young woman. What I will remember most about her is how she made me smile and laugh every time I was around her.  She truly brought joy everywhere she was.
My heart goes out to Marsha, Phillip and Dean and all her family and friends and those privileged to know her.  What a spirit, what a life, what a joy! Cindy fought a long, courageous battle with cancer and diabetes.  She remains an inspiration to us all. Go rest high on that mountain, Cindy, in His loving arms. You will forever be missed and remembered.
